Default Musa 'African Red' with light variegation

We got a tray of Musa 'African Red' plugs a couple of years ago. There were several plants in it that showed some variegation on the leaves. Nothing heavy but some distinct streaks. They all grew out of it, subsequent suckers came up green. One plant I planted at my house has started getting variegation on it again. It also flowers when it is only about 5-6ft tall.

Eric, I got mine from you at the plant sale a couple of years ago. Interestingly, mine was completely green the first year, but some pseudostems came up variegated last year (lightly).
